CAN declares sit-at-home protest over Plateau killings

The Plateau northern zone chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has asked its members to sit at home for two days in protest of the “continuous killing by herdsmen” in the state.

The directive was contained in statement issued Isa Nenman, CAN chairman in the zone.

The sit-at-home order is to be observed on Wednesday and Thursday.

Nenman said Christians should not go to work or the market.

“CAN Plateau northern zone has issued directives to all Christians to sit down at home today and tomorrow. No work, no farm, no market and mourn over the continuous killing,” the statement read.

“Turn out tomorrow for the massive protest to be led by all our mothers supported by the Youths. Meeting point old airport roundabout 27th June, 2018 9am.”

Over 100 people were reportedly killed in Plateau by suspected herdsmen at the weekend. Properties were also destroyed in the attacks.
